Asda recall meal thanks to salmonella risk

21 April 2016

Asda have issued an urgent product recall on a meal thanks to the risk of salmonella.

The product in question is the Chicken & Sweetcorn Pasta Salad, which has a 'use by' date of 23rd April 2016, and is a 400g pack, with the barcode 505478110346.

The salmonella was found during routine tests, and if you eat it, you're going to feel magnificently ill, with stuff coming out of both ends, if you catch our drift.

So obviously, do not eat it.

If you have one of these salads, then return it to your nearest store, and they'll give you a full refund. If you're not bothered about the money, just throw it in the bin.

The bug has only been detected in one sample, but the supermarket doesn't want to take any chances.

The Food Standards Agency says: "Asda has recalled its Chicken & Sweetcorn Pasta Salad, with a 'use by' date of 23 April 2016 because the product contains salmonella, a bacterium that can cause food poisoning."

"Asda has recalled the affected product from consumers. Product recall notices have been displayed in stores that sell the product explaining to customers the reason for recall and the actions they can take if they have bought the affected product."

You will not need a receipt to return the product, and if you feel the need to speak to someone about this, contact Asda Customer Relations on 0800 952 0101.

No other Asda products are known to be affected.
